Came here with my wife, to what is according to some people the best bar in the world. I have to say I am hugely disappointed. My drink came in a box with a tablet that was projecting butterfies on my drink. My wive's drink was in an object that looked like fluffy balls that were illuminated. Anyway the presentation...

Very creative cocktails, the menu itself is a piece of art. Posh, but yet cozy atmosphere. Polite staff.

Having booked a table at Palm Court, we thought that our entrance would be more welcomed! On complaining to management we managed to get in. Staff could be more polite, at these prices. Cocktails were fun, tasty and interesting.

This venue is real class without being pretentious. The drinks are top draw as you would expect the area and service attentive and not over bearing. The honey nuts are superb

Called in for a pre-lunch drink, as a spur of the moment decision whilst passing by, and therefore had no particular expectations or pre-conceived thoughts. It is fair to say the bar did not fail to disappoint and the overall experience left me feeling rather flat. It was very quiet in the bar and seemed to lack atmosphere, despite the... More

London has much more of great bars! Drinks are really good but very small and around £20 each. Decoration is really cool and creative but taste is not very special - we tried three per person and had a few bites which were really good.

Very elegant upscale cocktail bar. Cocktails are served in bespoke glassware and are definitely perfected. But maybe too perfected. The Telegraph has named it best cocktail bar in the world. While I do not necessarily agree the Artisian does have great service and highly skilled mixologists. An experience for sure, but would not be my regular go to place as... More

The Artesian offers VERY innovative cocktails and a terrific bar menu. There truly is something for everybody. It certainly isn't a typical stodgy hotel bar.

Staying in Marylebone

Neighbourhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
